Caretaker manager Neil Harris has said he’s been delighted with the response of the players to his appointment as gaffer until the end of the season.

Hear Harris Ahead Of Bolton

Speaking to the official site ahead of his first game in charge against Bolton Wanderers, Harris explained that the response from the players in training had been ‘outstanding’ and he couldn’t have been more pleased.

Even joking that one session was brought to an end early because of the efforts the players were putting in and he didn’t want them to be injured or knackered ahead of the weekend.

As we begin another ten game ‘great escape’ he said.

‘The players have all been absolutely outstanding. It is always difficult because some players feel responsible for the manager losing his job, and some will be relieved because they think they will get an opportunity. I had to finish the first training session early because the tempo of it, and the way I think they wanted to impress me, was vast. I didn’t want them to burn out early in the week.’

Harris goes on to say that giving our placing in the Championship table – second from bottom and eight points shy of safety and Fulham, it is obviously a very ‘precarious position’ for us to be in and even though we have experience from last season – and confidence and belief can be taken from how we turned that around – that will count for very little unless we start getting points on the table and quickly in the coming few games.

‘We are in a really precarious position and completely up against it at the moment, but we’re going to have a right good go at this. Sometimes when the chips are down you have to come out fighting – and we are going to do that.’
